OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Oakland Athletics continue to be the hottest team in baseball. Even the mighty New York Yankees are not enough to intimidate them.

Brandon Moss singled to right in the bottom of the ninth Friday for the Athletics' 10th walk-off win of the season as Oakland beat New York 3-2. It was Oakland's fifth walk-off win in its past nine home games.

Rookie Yoenis Cespedes had a career-high four hits, and Josh Reddick was 3-for-5 with two doubles. Jemile Weeks and Brandon Inge also drove in runs for the A's, who are a major league best 12-2 in July.

Rookie Tommy Milone pitched seven scoreless innings, allowing only six hits while recording a career-high 10 strikeouts. He lowered his home ERA to 0.91.

Ivan Nova pitched 6 2/3 innings for the Yankees, scattering nine hits and two runs. He walked one and struck out six.

Robinson Cano tied the score at 2-2 with an opposite-field home run to left in the top of the ninth off Ryan Cook (4-2). Cano previously singled to extend his hitting streak to 23 games.

In the bottom of the ninth, Cespedes singled hard to center off Cody Eppley (0-1). Jonny Gomes singled to short, putting runners at first and second. Moss delivered the game-winning single to right.

Russell Martin homered for the Yankees in the eighth to make it a one-run game.

Eric Sogard tripled to lead off the bottom of the eighth but was thrown out at home on a fielder's choice grounder to short by Kurt Suzuki. On the play, Suzuki made it to second base. Coco Crisp walked, but Weeks fouled out, leaving Cook no margin for error in the ninth.

Crisp tripled to right in the third inning and scored on a sacrifice fly to center by Weeks.

In the fourth inning, Moss and Inge hit back-to-back doubles to make it a 2-0 Oakland lead.

At one point, Milone retired nine in a row. He allowed singles to Mark Teixeira and Alex Rodriguez in the fourth. On the single by Rodriguez, Teixeira tried to advance from first base but retired on a perfect throw by Reddick to Inge at third base.

Milone ran into trouble again in the sixth inning when Derek Jeter reached on an infield single and Teixeira singled to left. However, the Oakland rookie remained composed and got Rodriguez to ground out to end the threat.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Athletics got two-out singles from Reddick and Cespedes. After the Yankees brought in reliever Boone Logan, pinch hitter Gomes walked to load the bases. Logan struck out Moss looking on a breaking ball to keep the game close.

NOTES: The Athletics improved to five games over .500 for the first time since April 17, 2010. ... Milone's 10 strikeouts are tied for the most by an A's pitcher against the Yankees in Oakland franchise history. ... The Yankees have committed six errors in Nova's past six starts. ... Nova has allowed 64 extra-base hits, the most by any pitcher in the majors... Cano's 23-game hitting streak is the longest active run in the major leagues. It's the longest streak by a Yankee since Jeter hit in 25 straight during the 2006 season. ... Andruw Jones struck out swinging four times. ... Nick Swisher left the game with a mild left hip flexor strain.
